Taking a little side step from weddings this week it is our pleasure to introduce you to fashion photographer Richard Julio.
Welcome Richard! To get started can you tell us a little bit about yourself and your experience working with Makeup In The 702?
“I am a nationally published fashion and portrait photographer based in Las Vegas Nevada, specializing in both commercial fashion and professional headshots for models, actors and corporate professionals. As a fashion photographer, I need to be able to rely on my entire team to be prepared for anything. My friends at Makeup in the 702 are always prepared for anything and can pull off whatever I or my client needs. Working with other professionals also allows me to bounce ideas around to see what will work and what may not, having that experience to tap is key when on the job.”
What would you like potential client know about working with you?
“For any client I always recommend planning out your photo shoot. The best place to start is by asking these questions. What clothes are you going to wear? Will you need to buy anything, if so when and will you have it in time for the shoot? What types of shots do I want to photographer to definitely get?”
What are some of the misconceptions about your service?
“Lots of people nowadays think you can Photoshop anything. To some degree that is true, but the tradeoff is that fixing some things in post-production doesn’t look as good as getting it right in camera. How can a client be prepared, simple things like making sure clothes are ironed ahead of time and getting a good night’s rest before hand can really make a big difference so that you avoid looking tired with bags under your eyes. Professional hair and makeup styling is worth the investment as well. Having a professional makeup stylist that can blend, contour and cover up blemishes in invaluable in photography. In addition, a professionally done hair style will last longer and have more versatility throughout your shoot. When hair is properly dried, smoothed, or set; it has memory. That curl, volume, or sleekness will fall right back into place after clothing changes or action poses, or be able to easily be switched into a completely different look quickly. All these things are a great way to look your best and get the most out of your photos.”
What are the benefits of using your service?
“I work hard to produce high end images that look ready to be published in a magazine. That means you get stunning images and tailored customer service to fit your needs.”
Where do you find your inspiration?
“I find inspiration in many different genres of art such as movies, music, theater, painting, other types of photography etc. Most of my focus however is on the fashion industry, following what trends are popular or up and coming is important as a fashion photographer.”
